Call on Cisco ACI developers to remove the Forwarding drop-down from the Create Bridge Domain dialogue

In ACI, when creating a Bridge Domain, there is a Forwarding option that allows me to define as a group a set of forwarding behaviours. I can set the Forwarding option to Optimize or Custom.  The default is Optimize, and optimised forwarding  sets these values:

OptionPossible values, default bolded
L2 Unknown Unicast:Hardware Proxy, Flood
L3 Unknown Multicast Flooding:Flood, Optimized Flood
Multi Destination Flooding:Flood in BD, Drop, Optimized Flood
ARP FLoodingEnabled, Disabled

I call on the ACI developers to remove the Forwarding option from the Create Bridge Domain dialogue and replace it with the four hidden options they define. 


There are two main reasons for this:

  1. Since ACI v4.2, the meaning of the option has been changed and is now confusing. See this discussion on the community forum.
  2. If I select Custom, then change any of these defaults, then re-select Optimize, none of the options return to the default "optimised" values - again making the option confusing.
